How to enable SharePoint Designer Workflows

We know that there are 3 types of workflows

  • Out of the box workflows

  • SharePoint Designer workflows

  • Custom workflows using Visual Studio and Workflow Foundation (WF)

By default SharePoint Designer workflows are enabled on a site in SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) but if you want to change the default settings (or if they are disabled) follow these steps

  1. Open Central Administration.

  2. Click Application Management tab.

  3. Under Workflow Management Section, click Workflow settings.

  4. Make sure you have selected the web application on which you want to perform the operation

  5. Click Yes or No for "Enable user-defined workflows for this site?" depending on your requirement.

Note: Users with Web Designer permissions can create and deploy workflows by using the Workflow Designer wizard in Office SharePoint Designer 2007.
